The jazz quartet will include world renowned and as heard on the 2010 Grammy-winning album Book 1 by the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra, clarinetist Evan Christopher, with Dr. Richard MacDonald on percussion, Rick Carlson on piano and Steve Pikal on bass. Rick and Steve are well known Twin Cities musicians who have played a number of shows with Evan over the years in the metropolitan area.
Over the past couple of years Evan has been a featured jazz performer at Minnesota Orchestra Hall, has featured prominently at Carnegie Hall as recently as this past October with New Orleans Jazz Orchestra, and during this past year has toured Japan, France, Ireland, New York, North Africa and South America. He also appears frequently in New Orleans with the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra and has been featured at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, the French Quarter Festival and many other New Orleans Jazz events and functions.
He is very excited to be appearing in Winona as the featured performer in the Winona’s third annual New Orleans Jazz Artist Series, graciously hosted by the renowned Frozen River Film Festival in partnership with the Friends of Jazz!
